For my blogging sistah's

To all the women in my circle: My sister Tracy sent this to me today and it touched me. I wantet to share with all of you.

I used to believe in the concept of one best friend, and then I started to become a woman.
And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up
God would show you the best in many friends.
One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man.
Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
One friend will say, "Let's cry together,"
another, "Let's fight together,"
another, "Let's walk away together."
One friend will meet your spiritual need,another your shoe fetish, another your love for movies,another will be with you in your season of confusion, another will be your clarifier, another the wind beneath your wings.
But whatever their assignment in your life, on whatever the occasion, on whatever the day, or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hairpulled back, or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself .. those are your best friends.
It may all be wrapped up in one woman, but for many, it's wrapped up in several... one from 7th grade, one from high school, several from the college years, a couple from old jobs, on some days your mother, on some days your neighbor, on others, your sisters,and on some days, your daughters. So whether they've been your friend for 20 minutes or 20 years, AND ONLY IF YOU'D LIKE TO, pass this on to the women that God has placed in your life to make a difference.

So beautiful and so true!

I got that from a friend and sent it out. Mx Ex-BF told me that she felt that our friendship had run its course, that is after she read the poem. I got it from my longest friend in the world to send to my other friends. Let just say that it over. Hope that you friendships are long lasting!!
